Project Discipline: Yoga
Ages: All ages!!
Difficulty level: Easy
Supplies (optional): Yoga Mat
Today's activity is to learn a few new yoga poses by doing them! We found these downloads from kidsyogastories.com. Head that way for free downloads! If you're doing these with kids, you can visit the site for lesson plan ideas as well. Otherwise, just make it up as you go, like we did!
Step 1: Choose which worksheets to go through (We chose Superheroes and Ocean!)
Step 2: Set up your area. Superbrain yoga suggests facing east, and removing all jewelry. This is a good opportunity to introduce North, South East & West concepts for younger ones, and revisit the concepts for older 4-H'ers.
You can do these on a yoga mat, or just the floor. Have fun with it!
We played some background music during our sessions. Find your own, or try what we used:
Humpback whale songs
Try your own yoga session, and remember - have fun! Have someone snap a picture of you and post to our Alaska 4-H page, tag #learnbydoingathome
